In other news, the recently passed Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA) authorized five years of federal investment in the water and wastewater sectors. The 2022 allocations alone are an estimated $153M in WA, $92M in OR, and $63M in Idaho through the SRF programs. It is a staggering sum that will grow each year for the next 5 years.

This presents a generational opportunity to build and upgrade treatment plants to state-of-the-art facilities. New technology, equipment, and instrumentation can reduce the energy and chemical footprint of our facilities, while lowering operating costs and maximizing the recovery of resources and energy from the influent.
